Arab NATO

A look at the formation of Arabic NATO project

A look at the formation of Arabic NATO project

The so-called “Arabic NATO “plan is not a new plan. The US government has tried several times to establish and organize similar alliances. For example in 2015  the United States created a "reactionary force" in Egypt with about 40,000 troops from Egypt, Jordan, North Africa and the Gulf states which its command structure was similar to NATO. The cost of this force was provided by the Gulf Cooperation Council. However, because of tension in the region and disputes between member states the formation of the army failed. Also, last year after Trump’s trip to Riyadh, several countries with a predominantly Muslim population gathered in Saudi Arabia to create a military alliance called "Islamic Arabic NATO". But this plan has not been operational yet and there is nothing left from the Yemeni War Alliance which was shaped by Saudi bribes and tremendous cost. The failed attempt by Washington to form a 200,000 force from the Arab states to appear in northern Syria is another example.

The crisis and quarrels in Arab relations are one of the challenges that Arabic NATO is facing. The crisis in The Gulf Cooperation Council is now the biggest challenge the plan is facing. Saudi Arabia, UAE, Egypt, and Bahrain ceased diplomatic relations with Qatar in June last year and that has lasted more than a year. The Co-operation Council is currently suffering from these disagreements and inconsistencies. The disagreements between Saudi Arabia and Qatar, the disagreements between Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates in Yemen which both of them seek their own strategies, and the non-alignment of Oman and Kuwait with Saudi offensive foreign policy is another challenge in the Arab world. Another challenge is the long-standing disagreement between Saudi Arabia and Egypt about the Arab world's leadership, and issues such as the leadership of the Arab NATO and its headquarters can also exacerbate these disagreements and sensitivities.
